Nothing about Orfeh is ordinary, and her name offers the first hint! Orfeh's mother had a premonition that she would become a singer and gave her a name inspired by Orfeu Negro, the 1959 film shot by French director Marcel Camus in Brazil (better known by its American name: Black Orpheus).

Orfeh grew up in New York and attended city public schools. Immediately after high school graduation she landed a record deal with EMI Records, headlining the early-1990s dance group Or-N-More. Although their single "Everyotherday" climbed to #1 on the club music charts, the group soon stopped performing and recording together. After Or-N-More, Orfeh's talents as a songwriter earned her a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell. She has written and produced songs for other artists and is a member of NARAS, which gives her nominating and voting privileges for the Grammy Awards. It is safe to say that she knows a thing or two about music!

Orfeh made her Broadway debut in the fall of 1998 as understudy to all the female leads in the original company of Footloose, she was soon sought after for more prominent stage roles. As part of the ten-member company of The Gershwins' Fascinating Rhythm, Orfeh belted out modern interpretations of Gershwin classics alongside talents like Adriane Lenox, Sara Ramirez and Patrick Wilson. The stage version of the John Travolta disco film classic Saturday Night Fever opened on October 21, 1999 at the Minskoff Theatre. Orfeh was featured as Tony Manero's jilted sidekick Annette, offering a powerhouse rendition of the disco smash "If I Can't Have You". She caught the eye of Rosie O'Donnell, who immediately booked Orfeh to sing the song on her popular talk show. Saturday Night Fever went on to run for 15 months on Broadway. Orfeh never missed a performance!

Orfeh has also been seen on the Broadway stage in highly-touted Actors' Fund of America benefit concerts of Dreamgirls and Hair and in two off-Broadway musicals: as rock icon Janis Joplin in Love, Janis and as trailer park stripper Pippi in The Great American Trailer Park Musical. and is presently starring in Legally Blonde as Paulette, the unlucky-in-love Bostonian hairdresser who becomes best friends with Elle Woods.

As an actress, Orfeh has guest starred on Sex and the City, Chappelle's Show Law & Order: Criminal Intent and in the movie musical Across the Universe, directed by Julie Taymor. As a voice over artist, she can be heard on video games Max Payne 2, Grand Theft Auto/San Andreas and The Warriors and is one of the primary female voices heard on MTV and VH1.

I highly suggest that you purchase a copy of "What Do You Want From Me" and go check Orfeh out in Legally Blonde. Trust me darlings, you won't be disappointed.
